* AddledAddict: Constantly high as a kite and on some kind of drug.
* {{Cloudcukoolander}}: Given that he's a drug addict, he's prone to saying and doing bizarre things.
* GeniusDitz: Prone to poor decisions and spacing out due to his drug addiction, but there are suggestions throughout the series that Base Head is a very intelligent man and was on his way to a good career before succumbing to his addiction.

In his own words, "I coulda been a doctor, or a lawyer, 'cause I'm smarter, but it's harder to think when broke."
* {{Gonk}}: His meth addiction has left him with no teeth and gaunt cheeks.
* ProgressivelyPrettier: A ''very'' downplayed case. In earlier episodes, he looked considerably older and more disturbing. In later episodes, aside from his missing teeth, he's somewhat decent-looking.
